The University is also required to report statistics for hate (bias) related crimes by the type of bias for the above crime classifications and the additional four crimes (larceny, vandalism, intimidation, and simple assault) listed below. These are not required to be reported unless this incident involves a hate crime.

Hate Crimes* Larceny
Vandalism
Intimidation
Simple Assault
None of the Above

A hate or bias related crime is not a separate, distinct crime, but is the commission of a criminal offense which was motivated by the offender's bias. For example, a subject assaults a victim, which is a crime. If the facts of the case indicate that the offender was motivated to commit the offense because of his bias against the victim's race, sexual orientation, etc... the assault is then also classified as a hate/bias crime.

Bias* Race
Gender
Religion
Sexual Orientation
Ethnicity
Disability
Does Not Apply
